High School Physical Education for the Big Teen

I am continuing to record my big teen's high school courses here so that they are documented in more than just a lesson book.   Here is a record of his P.E. course.   Of course, the big teen is active doing things every day that could be seen as P.E., but I recorded 112 hours of activities.  The breakdown is as follows:

  • Archery lessons ~ 7 Hours
  • Swimming ~ 19 hours
  • Long walks, hiking, challenge course ~ 14 hours
  • Basketball with others ~ 7 hours
  • Rock climbing, skateboarding lessons, sledding ~ 9 hours
  • Health (read the book, I Kissed Dating Goodbye, and read materials on nutrition and spread of disease) ~ 21 hours
  • Weight lifting and balance work ~ 35 hours
  • Soccer with others ~ 8 hours
He has really gotten into weight lifting.  He has a set in his room and also loves to go work out at the YMCA.  Overall, he did great and showed great progress.  He stuck with reading the I Kissed Dating Goodbye book, even though he said he already understood about courtship (he was raised that way, after all) before starting it and thought it was a waste of time that he could have been doing gym.  He got an A in this course.

Blessings, Dawn
